“The cup that I drink you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with a baptism with which I am baptized. But to sit on My right or on My left, this is not Mine to give; but it is for those for whom it has been prepared” (Mark 10:39-40).
What God has in store for our eternal reward is best understood in the light of today’s obedience. In fact, Jesus offers no promises to James and John regarding eternity’s seating arrangements. Such belongs to God the Father. What Jesus desires is to prepare his disciples to face today’s battles and responsibilities. Stand up in faith to these challenges of today and and where you sit in God’s tomorrow will take care of itself.
